Weight loss is a painful undertaking. You remind yourself constantly, “I don’t like you very much, Self. You need to change,” and often—though the changing is positive—the negative feelings toward yourself have a nasty way of overriding that.
Most days I look in the mirror and want to cry, and today was no exception. I can’t see any visible progress, so I thought it was time for a comparison. I put on the outfit I was wearing in the most honest and terrifying photo ever taken of me and gave it a go.
Health-minded folk often say we should judge our bodies for what they can do rather than for what they look like. The celebratory stance in picture two is for my first 8-minute mile on an elliptical. If I’m judging this annoying sack of skin and water for its ability, then yeah, today I guess I can say I’m proud. 😊
